The age at which you can start or be sexually active - a very interesting question, which
concerned not only parents, but also psychologists. Usually, you can not answer the question of
when and to whom to start having sex. However, there are certain statistics that the average age of
sexual debut in adolescents - is 15 years for girls and 14 for boys. Now we are talking about
European society, about what is happening in Ukraine, particularly in mountainous areas.
The fact that the willingness in principle to sexual intercourse is associated with physiological
aspects. There is a notion in sexology - sexual constitution.
There are several factors play a role, of course, one of which is constitutional, but not always,
psychological maturity and sexual constitution, rather, because of the need for sexual constitution
in holding intercourse can match.
That is, some teens may be physiologically ready for sexual intercourse at 12-13 years, but the
question arises: Are they psychologically? And probably we can not give a definite answer to this
question, because curiosity taboo in society, which in the majority rejects teen sex, pushing them
into early sexual relations. Nevertheless, probably still age readiness and psychological and
physiological - is 18-19 years if we are talking about teen sex
